Obama warns Putin on intervening in Syria's civil war

Source: CNN

President Barack Obama warned his Russian counterpart Tuesday against intervening in Syria's civil war, suggesting that Vladimir Putin is aware of the dangers his country faces by entering the bloody conflict.

"I think Mr. Putin understands that ... with Afghanistan fresh in the memory, for him to simply get bogged down in an inconclusive and paralyzing civil conflict is not the outcome that he's looking for," Obama said at a news conference in Paris.

The grand chessboard looking a bit dated.

6. "Afghanistan fresh in the memory" - umm - it ain't the same

Putin is threatening the USA's dominance in the region.

As far as the comment "to simply get bogged down in an inconclusive and paralyzing civil conflict",

Is that not exactly what the USA has been doing in the ME for over 2 decades?

8. who better to understand the perils of getting bogged down in an inconclusive, paralyzing conflict

than Obama?

He inherited Iraq and Afghanistan, and decided to add Libya, Syria, Yemen, the Ukraine, and wherever else he's been bombing. I've lost track....

10. Putin must be laughing at Obama (Yemach Shemo), apparently only Obama is allowed to intervene

in Syria...

Now inevitably when Putin ignores him Obama looks like Steve Urkel, yet again.

If your going to threaten Putin it has to be from a position of greater power.

There is nothing the USA can do to stop Putin in Syria IF Putin so chooses to ignore Obama

12. Sounds like the Jedi mind trick: "...this is not the outcome you're looking for".

Back up is on the way.

The UK is set to jump into the ring tonight, after a vote in Parliament to authorize airstrikes in Syria.
